The flashing backlit floors of the disco provided the inspiration for Collection 54 by Jan Kath. Light flashing off glittering mirror balls becomes contemporary rug art. Four patterns of fine lines are arranged to create interlocking grids that seem to vibrate and shine. Metallics and gem tones shimmer with shades of copper, gunmetal, silver, gold and emerald.
Fabricated of hand-spun Tibetan highland wool and Chinese silk, the rugs blend open Tibetan knotting and Soumak flatweave. The results are tonal designs with mathematical precision and dynamic energy—enough to keep you dancing all night long.
